By popular request, I’ve created a bloglines feed for all VeganMoFo participants, and those that just like to watch. I think that since it’s an rss feed you can do other cool stuff with it, if you happen to know, please fill us in!
While putting this together (click. click. click. click.) I was able to see what everyone is up to and, I’m not sure if it’s because I have my period and I was listening to Simon Garfunkel*, I felt a burst of love that started in my heart, traveled to my shoulders and then funneled itself directly into the internet. So if you felt something awkward and uncomfortable about half an hour ago, that was my love.
I love reading about food, everything about it. I love to read what kind of food people hate, I love to read about emotional attachments to it, I love to read about the history of it, and of course I love to read about cooking and eating. I mostly have to get my fix from non-vegan sources, because even though there are lots of vegan blogs and lots of food porn, people don’t write about food enough to keep up with my demand. So that’s what VegaMoFo has given me so far, and it’s only 1/3 over.
I want to suggest to those of you that are having problems with the writing, instead of writing about the problems you’re having, how about link to a fellow MoFoer’s blog entry with just a few words about what you like about it. You can also stumble entries or add them to delicious or whatever people are doing these days. VeganMoFo is the vegan month of food, let’s force it on everyone else.
Here are a few must-reads I enjoyed this morning:
Vegan Chicks Rock writes about Mighty-O Donuts. Because I never tire of reading about donuts, especially Mighty-Os. Donut porn included.
Sarchan talks about being fearless in the kitchen. She also shares a recipe from her 7 year old self (so cute!) and a picture of my favorite pumpkin pie of all time, Myra Kornfeld’s from Voluptuous Vegan. I leave off the pecans, though. I like my pumpkin pie pure.
Bottle And Ball hates on celery. I hate celery, too, but she is much more thorough about it.
Vegan Dad grills polenta. To be honest, I just love this blog so you can pick any post and read it. Possibly because of my father issues, the very words “vegan dad” make me instantly happy. But his food always looks good and his writing is always honest. Plus, for everyone that thinks that veganism is too difficult, I would direct them to the description in his header:
“When you have kids, supper has to be on the table every night. And when you are a vegan, the drive-thru, the deli counter, and TV dinners/frozen convenience foods are not an option. So, you do the best you can. This blog is a record of what my family eats. It’s not always a totally complete meal, not always photogenic, and sometimes it’s leftovers. But, it is a realistic look at a vegan family in a northern Ontario city that is not always vegan-friendly.”
Makes your heart go pitter-patter, don’t it?
Vegan Hodge Podge teaches us a little bit of Korean. And a little bit about Korean vegan food.
Tips for eating on the cheap, from Pickled Treats. She’s actually been dishing out a lot of great advice on going vegan. I haven’t missed a day of this blog since MoFo began.
Amy discusses the intersection of mathematics and dinner with some romanesco broccoli. Also, this is my friend’s blog and my way of reminding her to update it. 3 days does not a month of food make!
*Does it go without saying that if you have your period you are also listening to Simon And Garfunkel? Sorry for the redundancy.
